Mombasa women rep faces arrest over hate speech

19 June 2014, 16:03 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Mombasa women representative Mishi Mboko has been ordered arrested by the government over hate speech claims.

Mboko was Thursday ordered arrested by the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions DPP over an alleged speech made which had a tribal tone on Madaraka Day.

According to a plea set in motion Thursday at the Mombasa law courts, the DPP's office wants Mboko to be arraigned in court over alleged remarks targeting two communities in the country.

The DPP's office wants the police to be tasked with ensuring she appears in court.

It is alleged that she incited Mombasa residents against two communities she described as putting the country in ransom.

She is also alleged to have asked the crowd to start a revolution in the country against supposed injustices by the government.

She has yet to comment over the charges, even though her supporters have condemned the decision by the government to seek her out.

" This is victimization. She said the truth about the situation in the country. Why are other speaking similarly elsewhere and nothing has been done, one of her supporters said in Mombasa.
